St Kilda forward Paddy McCartin will be rested this week but the Saints haven't yet discussed ruling him out for the rest of the AFL season after he suffered a third concussion.

McCartin, 20, suffered a heavy knock in a collision with teammate Tim Membrey in St Kilda's loss to Gold Coast at Metricon Stadium on Saturday.

He will undergo further testing this week having also suffered concussions in round three and 11 this season, taking his total number to five in the past two years.
